    Around 75k for each weekend. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power…like God must feel when he’s holding a gun.

    75k is what i understand it to be now.

    EDIT: Of course i'm not sure if that's ticket-holders only, or includes EVERYONE (staff, security, performers, vendors, etc)

    I love how people say that the 2010 Coachella was crowded and how 75k people is too much for the polo grounds when Glastonbury in the UK has



    177,000

    Paying ticket holders


    I know you will say that the space is bigger but imagine queuing for the loo with that lot

    And having shit weather too.

    Be thankful

    Do you realize how much larger Glasto is? Glasto is 1000 acres, roughly 8miles. Empire polo fields are 90 acres

    Holy shit youre stupid.


    Coachella 2010 had an extra 15,000 people on top of the 75,000. so it was justifiable to say it was ''overcrowded''. And yeah, you should see the amount of land glastonbury has vs the polo fields. So go away, you lose.

    They do have more toilets too (obviously). I've never had to queue for a toilet at Glastonbury.

    Where was anyone whining? He just asked a simple question if it was going to be packed or not. Learn to read...

    Agreed. By Saturday night, the only sure way to not lose somebody was to hold onto them.

    I had to hold hands with my partner the whole time. Was a crazy crowd situation. Coachella goes are all calm though so it wasn't too much of an issue.
